Question: I agree with your answer. But 1 Peter 1:11 says that the Spirit of Christ was IN them not dwelling WITH them. I believe that these are types and shadows of what was to come. By the way John 14:17 is a powerfull Scripture. Praise the LORD!!!!!!!!!!

Answer: If Pentecost introduced something new, then we must conclude that Peter did not mean that the Holy Spirit was indwelling the prophets in the same way He began to indwell believers on Pentecost. The workings of the Spirit are not always easy to understand or explain. We see through glass darkly.
